Video of an upset woman emerging from rigid lake waters to confront the man who pushed her as a ‘prank’ on camera has social media tongue-tied.
The viral clip surfaced online this past week, appearing on World Star Hip Hop and then going viral on TikTok and Twitter. It’s unknown who the two people are arguing with each other in the video. The footage shows a woman and a man with their faces blurred out in a dispute after the man pushed the soaking wet woman into the water as a “prank,” the man said.
“Prank” Video Of Woman Appears To Be At Lake Pontchartrain
The crying woman crawled out of what appeared to me to be Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans; commenters pointed out. The lake has already claimed several people’s lives this year, according to multiple reports. Locals also say the dangerous slippery steps meant to help people out of the lake are known to sweep swimmers underneath because of the treacherous currents.
The Jane Doe in the viral clip was coughing while pulling herself up a ledge. The dark body of water behind her appeared to have a fast-moving current behind her, and her male companion filmed it in jest.
“I spent $1,000 on my hair, you playing,” the lady pointed out before letting the prankster know she could’ve died.
The man filming seemed unmoved by the woman’s tears and anger, pointing out it’s “not that bad,” and told her she was “being a cry baby.” The woman then tells the man that she will find her way home and asks the man to get away from her and stop filming her.
Video of the incident was shared on TikTok, drawing thousands on comments in concern.
Prank Video Leaves Social Media In Shambles
Although the subject of the viral clip are still a mystery, the situation has people on TikTok comments and on Twitter outraged. Many are calling for the arrest of the man who appeared unapologetic after pushing the woman in the the unstable body of water.

She obviously can’t swim. She’s in shock. Stop throwing people in the water. She has every right to be upset.
